The company was founded in 2007 by Director Simon Darby who has over 15 years experience in the investigation and enforcement industry having personally carried out thousands of cases around the North East of England and prior to this, worked as a Police Officer.

In the past few years Simon has developed an excellent reputation regarding the service of Non-Molestation Orders, with one client giving him the title ‘Respondent Whisperer’ due to his high personal service rate and ability to track down and serve Respondents even with very little information provided.

What others say about us…

So often in life people over-promise and under-deliver. When your firm is trying to do the opposite, you want to work with partners who have the same mindset. Simon and his team have never come up short, always deliver as they have promised, and in most cases turn things round more quickly than expected. I would not hesitate to recommend SDL to anyone looking for process serving or tracing services.

SD Legal are probably the best set of process servers I’ve used. Quick and reliable service at really fair prices. Simon is extremely pleasant to work with and makes the whole process seamless. Couldn’t recommend SD Legal enough, and have recommended them to others in my team.
